GREAT FALLS, Montana –  Make the holidays a little brighter by adopting an animal in need. The Great Falls Animal Shelter is hosting a “Share the Love” Adoption Promotion and Guardian Angel Fundraising Event this Friday, December 14, from 12-5 p.m. at Bennett Motors in Downtown Great Falls (26 9th Street South), in the Subaru Showroom.

Adoption fees will be waived for all animals 10 years and older.  Cats younger than 10 years can be adopted for $70 and dogs younger than 10 can be adopted for $80. The adoption fee includes spay and neuter charges, vaccinations as well as a City license, nametag, collar and 5-pound bag of Science Diet pet food.

Those who aren’t in the market to adopt a new pet can still spread a little love during the holidays and make the season glow a little warmer for the animals at the Shelter by donating to the Guardian Angel Fund during the event.  The Guardian Angel Fund provides for veterinary and emergency care of animals at the Shelter as well as the cost of spaying and neutering animals during adoption promotions.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was selected as one of five national charities to participate in the Subaru “Share the Love” holiday sales event this year. As part of the “Share the Love” event, for every new vehicle sold or leased between November 21, 2012, and January 2, 2013, Subaru will donate $250 to the consumer’s choice among five charity partners. The ASPCA has been matching Subaru dealers with local animal welfare agencies around the country to host pet adoption events at dealerships. The Great Falls Animal Shelter was awarded a grant from the ASPCA to host this Friday’s adoption promotion.

Get in the holiday spirit this Friday and “Share the Love.” Staff from the Shelter is ready to help potential pet owners find their new pet. If you miss Friday’s event, the adoption promotion continues through Wednesday, January 2, at the Great Falls Animal Shelter.
